I just spoke with my husband about this. He doesn't want his in pink.But I would like one. Could we compromise on 50%, rather than all?

Well, as Col. Cooper was known to say, the first rule of gunfighting, is "bring a gun." As for your choice of color, you should've picked yellow. YELLOW is the color of COWARDS, but I don't know many cowards who carry guns. Cowards may carry guns as a security blanket, but wise men carry guns for when the "Stuff" Hits the Fan.

I think you are operating off an incorrect view of the definition of courage. Courage is not the absence of fear, but taking necessary action despite your fear.

Are you suggesting rational law abiding citizens shoot willy nilly at noises in the bushes? Puhleazzzz!!! Most 15 year olds have more sense.

So much for cowardly Liberal hysteria.
you are a fool. quit listening to talk radio, it has addled your brain. the word liberal is not a bad word. there is no hysteria on this issue, excepting people like you.

i have no problem with firearms, i am also liberal in many political views. consider calling someone a coward to their face, and without your gun, and you might need the services of a dentist.

I'm all for the use of firearms for self defense or competition shooting but hunters are useless rednecks that are a throwback to an age that is, thankfully, passed. Buy your meat at Marsh or raise beef for slaughter but killing for sport is ignorant beyond all reason.
So It's ok to hire someone else to kill your food, but it's inhumane to do it yourself. I do not kill for sport. I will eat what I hunt. I feel a lot safer, considering the many food proccessing problems that a lot of commercial butchers encounter.

What the hell is going on around here? A government agency that chose not to violate the Constitution and ruled in favor of citizens rights?

Let's not hold our breath yet. This still needs to get approval from the corporate leadership in the State House.

Finally some common sense. I'm not as concerned about my fellow man in needing protection (unless in a Deliverence situation), but have you ever come across a pack of feral dogs on state property? I have. They're just a dangerous as a pack of wolves. I stopped talking hikes in more remote areas because of it. At least now I'd have a way to defend myself.

The one who is "scum" is you, buddy. You have no reason to call any hunter ignorant. Someone has to keep the deer, rabbit, squirrel, etc. population in check, or it will die of diseases far worse than lead poisoning. Compared to these diseases, sport hunting is highly humane.
i feel bad every time i see road kill. lets face it, the only way the population of many wild animals here in indiana are controlled is via disease, starvation, auto impact and hunting. as long as the hunters are controlled by an agency to manage population, they are the best solution to this.
that being said, it is game management, not hunter thrills that should be the primary focus.
many with guns should really consider the price that goes with the freedom to bear those arms....responsibility, education, not just shooting everything in sight.
we have plenty of raptors around now-- aftewr the rural areas went suburban. pretty much got the rifles out of kids (like me back then) hands who just HAD to see if they could knock down a hawk....
firearms are part of our very heritage. so are many mistakes we have made with them. lets honor BOTH our rights and responsibilities as americans, huh?

So instead of being prepared to fight, you're going to roll over and surrender? I'm guessing you're no bare-knuckle brawler. Could be wrong, but I'm guessing not.

perhaps you should consider what the definition of 'coward' is.

The ignorant are those that buy their meat in the store. Did you know that when a cow is fed corn it changes the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of fatty acids? This can directly lead to heart disease. Beef today can also contain growth hormones, antibiotics, and other chemicals needed to keep a cow in an unhealthy situation well enough to make it to market. Venison and other wild game are truly organic and a source of perfect protein. I hunt so that my family can be healthy. Is there anything in life more important than that? Anti-hunters apparently think so. I feel sorry for them as they must be malnourished and mentally incapable of rationally thinking through the negative consequences of not allowing hunting.

To Hunters Are Scum "Guns are fine but why anyone would hunt in this day and age is a mystery."

Obviously you have never seen a deer herd that has run out of food in late January or early February. I have owned property next to Brown County State Park for over 40 years, so I have plenty of experience observing the deer herd there. About 15 years ago the herd got too big and they ate all the available food before spring came. A starving deer is a very pitiful sight, and it is not just some of the deer that starve...it is ALL of them because there is no food. So which would you rather have- a small portion of the herd is culled each year by hunters, in which the deer die a relatively quick death, or no hunting and about every 10 years almost All of the deer die a very slow agonizing death by starvation? Oh I almost forgot...the forest down there is only now recovering from when the deer at all of the undergrowth and the bark on the trees.

I don't hunt,but I do cook, and I agree with you.
I always accept venison when a friend or co-worker offers as I know it is generally superior to what is offered at the supermarket.

Wild game is healthier than farm raised beef. I eat deer year round.
